Ditto on the Castrol, that stuff is amazing. We have the Castrol here like water, we can't live without it, lol. We use it to clean just about everything, as long as it isn't painted .

I used to use oven cleaner as well. The spray kind. Used it on plastic models, and lexan RC Car bodies. But, if it really is the same thing as the Castrol, get whichever is cheaper.

Simple green won't affect paint. Never wash a motor (in the car) with CSC. It'll eat the paint off your inner fenders.

Easy-Off oven cleaner, so long as the plastic isn't dyed red. The only times I've had trouble have been with red colored plastic, they turn BRITTLE and break.
